Each person will experience very different symptoms depending on the severity of their drug use, the length of time they have been using, and of course their drug of abuse. However, some aspects of rehabilitation are similar across the board regardless of the individual factors.
During treatment at Alpha Healing Center, each client will be monitored by our round-the-clock medical team and action will be taken to soothe the withdrawal symptoms as best as possible. In the cases of severe drug use, medication which mimics the effects of opiates or benzodiazepines may be given for a period of time to help the body as it learns how to function normally once again.
During the initial period without drugs, a long-term drug user is likely to experience a number of both psychological and physical withdrawal symptoms. The body and the brain functions need a period of time to readjust to functioning without the drug present and the adjustment period can lead to various withdrawal symptoms.
